Spring Stuff Sale

A shopper from our Stuff Sale asked if we would hold another one in 2009. After looking at the calendar, we are shooting for the afternoon of Friday, April 24, 2009. Cathy is in the process of locating a kid-friendly place in central Iowa.

We are also attempting to use our own mailing list more effectively, have a sales rep working to get vendors here for our April Conference, and sincerely move from research to solid marketing.

Another one

We've confirmed another topic and speaker -- Debi Zahn will speak on Charlotte Mason Education. Debi is teacher and mother to twelve children ages newborn through high school. She is active in a central Iowa Charlotte Mason support group, and has years of experience.

Our goal is to have nine speakers over three session, as well as one session dedicated to vendor presentations. In our effort to give the home school community what it wants, we're open to ideas from YOU -- who should speak, what topics you want to hear, and which vendors you like to browse.

We're also deliberating over a Spring 2009 Stuff Sale. Proposed dates will be in a poll in the sidebar -- vote today!
